Guided Tours with Shaya Ishaq

March 27 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm EDT

On Sunday, March 27, join Artist Respondent Shaya Ishaq for a tour of Esmaa Mohamoud’s exhibition To Play in the Face of Certain Defeat. Delving into topics such as Black resilience and racism in the sport industry, this guided visit will engage you in meaningful conversations about the powerful messages within Mohamoud’s work. As an artist paired with Esmaa Mohamoud through Connect, OAG’s Artist Mentorship Program, Shaya will also comment on some of the similarities between their practices and the different approaches both artists take to themes related to Blackness.

Please note that these tours will be taking place in English.

About Shaya Ishaq  

Shaya Ishaq is an interdisciplinary artist, designer, and writer whose research interests are engaged in craft, diaspora, design anthropology, and (afro)futurism. Devoted to materiality, she works with textiles and clay to create wearable art, jewellery, and installations. She is interested in the liminality of rites of passages and explores this through meditative processes such as weaving, felting, and hand built ceramics. Her design palette extends to furniture, objects, and spaces which allows her work to live at the junction of community engagement and creative practice.
